[ crickets chirping ] no. >> stephanie: romney has practiced delivering the lines on aides since august. aides who presumably are paid to laugh at the same line. oh my god, that was better. by the way nothing like repetition to make it funny. seamless delivery already. sidesplitting but then if you've heard it like the tenth time. there was a story about how much he pays his aides. obama's staff is like -- twice the size. and now i understand why romney's overpaying. he's a, not a very good businessman and b, because they have to listen to the same stupid jokes over and over. >> a horse with a long face walks into a bar and the bartender says why are you here?
